the need for two level strategies…//Trump’s Antifa Moment: Police Repression, Nonviolence, and Movement Building on the Left

August 28th, 2017 · No Comments

These statements of so-called research are simply false. Non-violent tactics have accomplished absolutely nothing in the last fifty years as the right has consolidated its power overwhelmingly. The left must as we have noted here many times built a two level strategy that is evolutionary/revolutionary, each a failsafe for the other.
We link again to the history of Gandhi and the calamity he generated. Let’s note that the Irish rebellion and the Gandhi era started at about the same time…(along with bolshevism). The record of violence/nonviolent movements needs to be assessed with care.

It’s also not surprising that Black Bloc-Antifa tactics failed to win over the masses. Recent research demonstrates that non-violent civil disobedience is far more effective than violence in achieving political goals. This conclusion is documented in detail in Erica Chenoweth’s important book, Why Civil Resistance Works, in which she finds that non-violent activist campaigns are twice as likely to succeed as violent ones. The reason should be obvious.
